If you’re looking for something a little sportier and more comfortable than a boxy SUV to enhance your winter driving pleasure, consider the 2018 VW Golf Alltrack with 4Motion all-wheel drive. A little taller than the Golf SportWagen, the Alltrack offers more clearance, better visibility and a bolder look than its sibling. You can test drive one today at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

4Motion Eliminates Loss of Traction

The sophisticated 4Motion all-wheel drive system in the VW Golf Alltrack kicks in before you start to experience wheelspin, helping you to keep moving in icy or slippery conditions. Unlike other permanent all-wheel drive systems, the rear wheels are decoupled when the conditions are good, providing greater fuel efficiency. When the going gets tough, the rear wheel gears kick in within a fraction of a second by means of an electro-hydraulically controlled oil pump. An innovative control system is constantly measuring traction and determining how much power to deliver to each axle. Electronic differential locks determine when a wheel is slipping and momentarily apply the brakes, delivering power to the opposite wheel in a manner much more quickly than possible by a driver.

Roomy Interior has Plenty of Comfort

With a spacious 94.3 cubic feet of room in which passengers can stretch out, the VW Golf Alltrack provides plenty of room for adults to remain comfortable on long weekend adventures. More than 30 cubic feet of cargo room is more than enough for the weekly grocery run. Fold the rear seats down and you more than double that storage space for hauling large items. The Alltrack features extensive use of upscale materials, including V-tex leatherette seats and standard heated front seats. Choose the SEL model and you get a 12-way power driver seat so you can get just the right angle to combat fatigue on long drives. A standard MIB II infotainment system delivers the ability to stream music and podcasts while staying in touch with the outside world through hands-free communication.

People First Warranty New for 2018

Along with a number of new technology features, one of the most attractive new items in the VW Golf Alltrack for 2018 is the People First Warranty. While most automakers offer a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, VW coverage doubles that for 6 years or up to 72,000 miles. That proves that VW has a lot of confidence in all its vehicles, including the sporty and capable Alltrack. Test drive one today when you visit Chapman Volkswagen in Scottsdale.

Cars.com Names Atlas Best 3-Row SUV

Cars.com, one of the leading consumer information sites for news about cars, trucks and SUVs, has named the new VW Atlas the “Best 3-Row SUV of 2017” after a competition that wasn’t really close. Cars.com put the Atlas up against the Chevy Traverse, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander, and the results might surprise some people shopping for a new people hauler. “Volkswagen’s first SUV with a standard three rows of seats won this competition by one of the larger margins in Cars.com challenge history,” according to Cars.com editor-in-chief Jennifer Newman. “The all-new three-row SUV stole the show with its refined driving manners, ample passenger and cargo space, and easy-to-use technology.” If you’re looking for a people hauler that offers all the performance and comfort you’ll ever need, stop by Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale and take a test drive.

Second Recent Win for Volkswagen

The totally redesigned VW Tiguan also won the Cars.com challenge for the 2017 compact SUV category. Cars.com tests vehicles in 12 different categories, including value, visibility, ride quality, powertrain, multimedia, in-cabin storage, cargo storage, second and third-row comfort, driver and passenger comfort and interior quality. For the 3-row SUV competition, vehicles could not cost more than $46,000 including all options and transportation fees. Vehicles also won points for advanced safety features and the ability to accommodate various child safety seats. The first-place Atlas was followed by, in order, the Traverse, Pilot and Highlander. “We are so proud of this win for the all-new Atlas,” said VW VP Derrick Hatami. “Adding a 3-row SUV to our lineup has been a long time coming, so it was paramount to get it right. Coming out first in a head-to-head comparison with several key competitors is evidence that we are doing just that.”

Ladies and Gentlemen, Start Your Engines

The VW Atlas comes in variety of models starting at just $30,500. Depending on the model, you can choose from a 2.0L turbocharged engine that delivers a healthy 235 horsepower, or go with a 3.6L V6 motor that pumps out 276 horses. Either way you get startling fuel efficiency with 26 mpg on the highway for the 2.0L and 25 highway mpg for the V6. When equipped properly with the larger engine, the Atlas can tow up to 5,000 pounds, which is more than enough for most boats or travel trailers. Choose the 4Motion all-wheel drive option and selecting the right type of all-wheel drive for your current conditions is as simple as turning a dial. The new VW Atlas has earned a maximum five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and is a Top Safety Pick of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. VW also offers the best warranty in the business, a 6-year/72,000-mile limited bumper-to-bumper policy that’s double that of most competitors. See the all-new Atlas today when you take a test drive at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Touareg Offers Luxury You Can Live With

With all the deserved hype for the addition of the full-size Atlas and the redesigned compact Tiguan to the VW SUV lineup, the Touareg may have gotten lost a bit in the shuffle. That’s a shame because the VW Touareg is a sophisticated SUV that lets you haul, load, lift, pack and ride in the lap of ultimate luxury. With a V6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower, the Touareg is rated to tow 7,716 pounds. That’s more than enough for most midsize recreational trailers. The Touareg is also loaded with standard driver assistance features, including an automatic post-collision braking system and an intelligent crash response system that turns off the fuel pump, turns on the hazard lights and unlocks the doors in the event you’re in a crash that activates the air bags. If you’re in the market for a premium SUV, take some time to visit Chapman Volkswagen in Scottsdale and test drive the Touareg.

Get Ready for Your Glamour Shot

If there is one word to describe the feeling one gets when driving a VW Touareg, it just might be “glamorous.” From the available panoramic sunroof to the brilliant Bi-Xenon headlights, the use of premium materials and fine craftsmanship make the Touareg stand out from the rest of the SUV crowd. Front seats have active ventilation to keep you cool in the summertime, while the use of premium leather is as comfortable as your favorite pair of gloves. Heated front seats are standard, but you can choose to get heated seats to keep everyone in the vehicle warm and toasty. Four 12V outlets and one 115 plug-in will keep everyone’s electronics charged at optimal level. A hands-free lift gate provides easy access to the rear area, which adds up to 64 cubic seats once you fold the rear seats down. The 14-way power adjustable front seats have a memory to ensure you are in just the right position every time for the most comfortable trip possible.

Information is Just a Fingertip Away

The VW Touareg offers one of the most sophisticated navigation/infotainment systems available in the automotive industry. The 8-inch touchscreen not only maps your route, but provides both a bird’s eye view and two-dimensional rendering of your trip as it takes you turn-by-turn to your destination. Choose the available Dynaudio premium sound system and you get 620 watts flowing through 10 speakers to embrace you in a blanket of sound you won’t soon forget. Add on the overhead view camera and you’ll be able to see 360 degrees around your Touareg. This not only helps you park, but lessens the chance of hitting someone in your blind spot. See all the features and feel the luxury of the Touareg for yourself when you visit Chapman Volkswagen in Scottsdale.

The English translation of “Volkswagen” is, roughly, “the people’s car.” The popular German automaker is taking that translation one step further by offering “the people first” warranty on most of the 2018 lineup of Volkswagen vehicles. That translates into an industry first bumper-to-bumper coverage that lasts 6 years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first. “Volkswagen has always been the people’s car, and with the People First Warranty, we’re putting our customers first,” according to VW CEO Hinrich J. Woebcken. “By bringing the right cars at the right time and making the offer very competitive, we believe we’re in the position to grow in the U.S. market.” See the entire VW lineup and take a test drive when you visit Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Expanding the People First Warranty

VW first offered the phenomenal warranty coverage on the new Atlas and Tiguan SUVs. The company has now decided to expand that coverage to the 2018 Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Jetta, Passat, Golf, Golf Alltrack, Golf GTI, Golf R and Golf SportWagen. “Volkswagen has begun to grow again in America, and buyers have welcomed the Atlas and Tiguan into their homes,” said VW Sales VP Derrick Hatami. “Expanding this warranty beyond those two models gives our dealers another competing argument for the rest of our lineup, and we believe it will lead to a reduced overall cost of ownership for buyers.” The warrant covers the engine, transmission and 4Motion all-wheel drive system, along with other components normally covered in bumper-to-bumper warranties. If you decide to sell your vehicle, the coverage transfers to the new owner for up to 6 years and 72,000 miles from when the vehicle was first sold. Most competitors only offer a 3-year and 36,000-mile warranty on new vehicles.

Now’s the Time to Buy or Lease

Along with the announcement of the new People First Warranty, VW has also offered some incentives to help clear out the 2017 models. Qualified lessees can lease a 2017 Jetta S for as little as $119 a month with just $1,999 down during the Volkswagen Sell Down Event. If you prefer to buy, qualified buyers can purchase the Jetta for 0 percent APR and get an additional $1,000 cash back. Great lease and purchase offers are also available on the Beetle, CC, Passat, Golf, Tiguan, Atlas, Touareg and Beetle Convertible. Swing by Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale today to take advantage of the savings,,as the offers are only good through October 31.

Atlas Awarded Five-star Safety Rating

The new VW Atlas, the next big thing in the SUV market, has another pair of trophies for its award shelf. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Atlas it’s top five-star safety rating after earning almost perfect scores in all the government tests. When you add that to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s “Top Safety Pick” honor, you know the Atlas is one of the safest SUVs on the road. Sales have been strong for the Atlas in its first few months on the market and should grow even stronger with these two important designations. See the Atlas and take a test drive when you visit Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Plenty of Room in Spacious Interior

The Atlas is plenty big for you and six members of your family, friends or office mates to stretch out in without bumping knees or elbows. Three rows of plush, comfortable seats mean you’ll travel in comfort, whether you’re just making a morning coffee run or taking the family to a theme park on a summer vacation. Need to haul a piece of furniture home? Just fold the second and third row seats down and the Atlas turns into the world’s most sophisticated cargo van, offering almost 100 cubic feet of space for the occasional trip to the big box store. If you don’t need all that seating, you can opt for second row captain’s chairs that deliver even more space for each passenger. Getting into the third row doesn’t require an advanced engineering degree. You just fold the second row forward with one hand and it creates easy access.

Plenty of Power for All Your Needs

Whether you’re taking the crew up to the mountains for an art festival or towing the boat to a nearby lake, the Atlas has the power and performance to get the job done. When properly equipped, the Atlas offers a 5,000-pound towing capacity, or more than enough for most recreational needs. Opt for the 4MOTION all-wheel drive and you can switch between four different driving modes to fit the current road (or off-road) conditions. Whether you choose the standard 2.0L turbocharged engine or the larger 3.6L V6, the Atlas will have the power to get the job done. The smaller engine still delivers 235 horsepower while earning 26 mpg on the highway. The V6 only sacrifices 1 mpg on the highway rating while improving the horsepower to a healthy 276.

Best Warranty in the Business

VW is so confident in the quality of the build and components of the new Atlas that it offers the best bumper-to-bumper warranty in the business. With 6 years and 72,000 miles of coverage, that’s double the warranty of most competitors. The warranty also transfers if you sell the Atlas, adding to the resale value. Check out the new VW Atlas and take a test drive today when you visit Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

New Electric Bus Coming in Just Four Years

Fresh off the success of winning the concept truck of the year and buoyed by the response from consumers, Volkswagen executives recently announced they are going to put the I.D. BUZZ electric van into production by 2022. Reminding nostalgic buyers of the beloved VW microbus, the I.D. BUZZ shows the spirit that made Volkswagen such a popular brand in America. “After the presentations at the global motor shows in Detroit and Geneva, we received a large number of letters and emails from customers who said, ‘please build this car,’” according to Dr. Herbert Diess, VW CEO. “The microbus has long been a part of the California lifestyle. Now we’re bringing it back by reinventing it as an electric vehicle.” Stay in touch with Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale to see the progress of bringing the iconic microbus back to life.

I.D. Buzz Design Allows for Massive Interior

With the batteries mounted in the floor and the electronic drive components taking limited space, the interior of the I.D. BUZZ is expected to be enormous. “The vehicle looks like a compact commercial van on the outside, even though it offers the generous interior space of a large SUV,” said Dr. Diess. The I.D. BUZZ will make good use of that room, offering both a version for hauling people and one for hauling cargo. “Along with a minibus version, we’ll also be offering an I.D. BUZZ Cargo variant for zero emissions delivery of goods,” said VW commercial vehicle boss Dr. Eckhard Scholz. “With Level 3 autonomous capability, this is an ideal concept for an electric van, particularly for delivering packages and goods to the inner cities.”

Perfect Balance Between Past and Future

More than 70 years will have passed between the introduction of the Microbus and the I.D. BUZZ by the time the latest version rolls off the production floor. The new model pays homage to the genes of the original, offering maximum use of space on a small footprint. Expect a lot of new technology in the I.D. BUZZ, including quick-change seating, automated driving and tons of connectivity with the outside world. “We are delighted that our parent company has taken the decision to produce the I.D. BUZZ. This vehicle is the perfect balance between emotion, usability and sustainability, while also showcasing our technological leadership,” according to Hinrich J. Woebcken, CEO of VW North America. “The high seating position, cargo capacity, overall versatility and all-wheel drive option packaged into such an appealing design is just what our customers want from us. And it’s the perfect fit for the zero-emissions American lifestyle.” There are still a few years before the I.D. BUZZ shows up on the showroom floor at Chapman Volkswagen, but now’s a good opportunity to examine the entire VW lineup and see all the innovations created by German engineering.

With a starting sticker price of just $21,995, the new VW Tiguan Limited trim package offers a number of popular features at a deep discount. The Tiguan Limited comes with 16-inch wheels, a color infotainment system that offers Bluetooth connectivity and a rearview camera. For a little bit more, you can all-wheel drive and upgraded wheels. Choose the Premium Package and VW provides a larger infotainment screen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also includes a leather covered steering wheel with multifunction controls, keyless access, push-button ignition and cruise control. Check in at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale to test drive the redesigned Tiguan, VW’s entry into the subcompact SUV market.

Offers Spacious Seating for Five Adults

The VW Tiguan was redesigned for 2018 on a longer wheelbase chassis. The result is comfortable seating for five adults, with wide door frames offering easy access to the second row. There’s plenty of leg and headroom for everyone in the new Tiguan. The adjustable 40/20/40 back seat makes configuring the interior to haul awkward cargo a snap. Just fold the second-row seats down and you have an impressive 56.1 cubic feet. The front passenger seat folds flat forward, allowing room for those extra-long items, such as skis and lumber. VW engineers thought of everything to make transporting items easier, including a high-lifting rear tailgate to allow plenty of room to load bulky items.

Four-cylinder Delivers Power and Economy

Volkswagen outfits the new Tiguan with a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder motor that not only earns 27 mpg on the highway, but also produces 184 horsepower and a smile-inducing 221 pound-feet of torque. The result of all that power, when paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, is that you get the most power and efficiency from every shift. All you have to do is sit back and step on the gas and let the marvel of German engineering take over as you smoothly merge onto busy freeways or get around large trucks ahead of oncoming traffic. Put the transmission in Tiptronic mode, and  take over the shifting duties, letting you enjoy the driving experience even more.

VW Digital Cockpit Puts Info Where You Need It

The 12.3-inch VW Digital Cockpit puts all the important vehicle information where you need it, right in your line of sight. You can choose the information you want displayed, including speed, RPMs, temperature and time, or you can switch to navigation mode for a wide map detailing where you’re going and how you’re going to get there. The Tiguan Limited model also features the Intelligent Crash Response System that senses a collision and then shuts off the fuel, unlocks all the doors and turns on the hazard lights once the airbags fire. Check out the entire VW Tiguan lineup today and take a test drive when you visit Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Atlas Earns Top Safety Pick Rating

The new VW Atlas, a behemoth in the full-size SUV market, was recently awarded the Top Safety Pick ranking from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). When equipped with forward collision warning and autonomous emergency braking, the new Atlas scored “Good” ratings in five test categories. “Volkswagen’s commitment to safety and driver assistance technology is unwavering. We take great responsibility to ensure our driver assistance technologies get smarter,” according to VW VP Hendrik Muth. “The Atlas is an example of our ongoing commitment to offering these features, and we are proud it has been recognized as an IIHS 2017 Top Safety Pick.” The new VW Atlas is in stock and ready to test drive today at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Atlas Offers Post Collision Braking

Based on the premise that a collision is a series of ongoing events and not a single blow, VW offers automatic post-collision braking on all trim levels of the new Atlas. The system detects a primary collision and then automatically applies the brakes, reducing the chance of further damage. The VW Atlas also offers other automatic driver assistance systems, including lane departure warning, front and rear park distance control, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and parking steering assistant. An overhead view camera provides a 360-degree view around your vehicle, lessening the chance you’ll run over any hidden obstacles.

Personalize Your Information Display

The Atlas offers the 12.3 inch VW Digital Cockpit, which personalizes important vehicle information for a wide variety of settings. You can store four different profiles in memory, so it always displays your selected information at the touch of a button. Choose the wide map navigation option and your route and destination are displayed widely in your field of view, allowing you to stay focused on the road while you concentrate on not getting lost. The VW color touchscreen sound system puts all your audio controls and communication needs at a touch of the finger away. Connect it to your smartphone to stream your favorite music or podcasts, or take advantage of a free three-month SiriusXM satellite radio connection for a world of entertainment.

Choice of Two Engines

Right now, the only choice for the VW Atlas is a powerful 276 horsepower V6 that offers 5,000 pounds of towing capacity while still earning 25 mpg on the highway. A 2.0L turbocharged engine is coming later this year, with a little less horsepower but greater efficiency. Test drive the new VW Atlas today when you visit Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Volkswagen Sales on the Rise

Buoyed by the release of the new full-size Atlas and compact Tiguan SUVs, Volkswagen enjoyed a 4 percent increase in June sales from the previous year. The company sold 512,700 vehicles worldwide in June, with especially strong sales in the USA, China and South America. “The Volkswagen brand saw worldwide deliveries increase in June as well as overall for the first half of the year and recorded strong growth in China and other key regions,” according to Jurgen Stackmann, VW board member. “In the USA, the Atlas got off to a successful start in the first two months of sales and helped the brand outpace market growth.” See the new Atlas, redesigned Tiguan and the entire VW lineup at Chapman Volkswagen in Scottsdale.
